Gary Cappoccia and his opponent were heads up on the flop. The player checked to Cappoccia who bet 4,400 into a main pot of about 10,000. His opponent check-raised all in for 18,800 and after giving it some thought Cappoccia called.
The player showed for two pair and Cappoccia turned over for an open ended straight draw.
The dealer burned and turned the and Cappoccia improved to the eight high straight to take control of the hand. The river sealed the deal for Cappoccia who earned the pot and the knockout. “Is he allowed to do that or is he disqualified” joked a player at the table as Cappoccia stacked his chips.
